*****************************************************************
Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: " Black"

Description
: Photos with a predominantly black color, or something black. Difficulty: No entirely black compositions. Not meant to be a black and white contest.
We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.
With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at)farktography.net and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

- Stats can be found here.

Sunrise Silhouette
This was taken early one morning on the Catalina Highway north of Tucson. I normally don't like seeing sunrise (I like sleeping instead), but the gentleness of this one called to me, so I had to stop my car. 1/3, Pops.

Worst accidental over-exposure I've ever been responsible for. Ever. Met an old friend for breakfast one morning and the only thing I set up properly was the timer.

BTW... This was once my profile pic ("I'm the white guy"). Mod please delete this if it's out of bounds for any reason!
